Artist Talk: Stefan Römer

Please join us as the 611 Alexander Studios for a free artist talk with German artist Stefan Römer.

Stefan Römer works artistically de-conceptual with ideas and signification, he uses different media and writing. His deep interest in medial politics manifests his groundedness on the societal reality. Since he initiated the art-activist group FrischmacherInnen/Freshmakers in the early 1990s, connecting institutional critique, critical urbanism, and the change from the White cube to the Ambient as a sign of neoliberal corporatization and economization, he keeps the post-panoptical diagrammatics in focus: How does technical and social change incorporate the human body and influence the image regime?
